    i am raising 25 bb turkeys. they are going on 6 months of age. they eat on an average of 14-50lb bags of 20% lay pellet and 8-50lb bags of hen scratch a month. there is no feed waste. is this normal and the right amount they should be eating? also, someone told me they can raise 30 bb turkeys for $35-45 a month. is that possible when giving them the proper diet? and if so, how? i would really love to talk to some hardcore turkey people. thank you so much.
